Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


We describe five classes of smart pixel devices with increasing complexity and present an optoelectronic integrated circuit (OEIC) smart pixel array having programmable amplifier, inverter, logic element, bistable switch or latch functions. These devices are used in transmissive and reflective architectures to implement reconfigurable processors, multiplexed shuffle networks, cellular hypercube processors or sorting networks.
